Seek the Lord!

Glory in His holy name; Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD! Seek the LORD and His strength; Seek His face evermore! - Psalm 105v3-4

It seems like folks will look almost anywhere for help advice and counsel. This is nothing new, but there seems to be a real resurgence of fortune tellers, clairvoyants, mystics, and all kinds of sources to get advice on how to handle the future or what to do next.

Times of trouble tend to push people to these things, trying to find some kind of hope. Normally they get some kind of vague reason to have hope that things are going to get better, that good news is going to come. Then people leave satisfied that everything is going to be grand.

It is almost uncanny that in seeking all this help people too seldom seek the One who really has the answers. With all of this kind of stuff going on people are still turning their backs on the only one who can really help.

It is sad that though God's children may not go to that extreme, we still tend to look everywhere for help or advice on how to handle a situation. We look to a book or visit a website or post a status on Facebook trying to figure out what to do next. While, obviously, there is wisdom in seeking godly advice, there are times when we might depend more on that advice than on the source of advice Himself.

Let the hearts of those who rejoice who seek the Lord. Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face evermore.'

Maybe this morning is just the right time to seek the Lord's face for that challenge ahead.
